't tell it all, 4% say president obama. 48% say governor romney. doug, you have been reading these tea leaves your whole life. your whole career life. >> sadly i have. martha: tell us what are you reading in them? >> first you're exactly right, martha, when you see 48-48 leading the country it says as the race you suggested a tie. the challenge for the obama campaign is with interest lower among their supporters than among the romney supporters, is to get their supporters to the polls. martha: you know what you hear, doug? their ground game is so strong and that they, their early voter turnout, i mean i've seen things on both side, that are supportive of the early voter turnout. again all who you ask. >> that's the point i was going to make. the obama campaign in say the state of ohio is investing $50 million in gotv activity. unless they pull voters to the polls the natural enthusiasm advantage the republicans enjoy could give governor romney a slight edge. the gotv effort i firmly believe is stronger on the democratic side than the republican side. it is not ideology, it is just fact

that will be decided on as governor ron any says, big issues, not just small ball that obama is playing with. and, peter, i can tell you the benghazi issue is playing big time as well as the economic growth and job creation but the leadership issue in ohio is benghazi. >> what is the leadership issue on benghazi? what do you mean by that, ken? >> well, what i mean by that is the people are questioning why he was going on comedy central, why he was, you know, worrying about contraception at a time when he and his top officials understood that he we were under attack. that's a serious leadership issue and people are starting to raise that question. the other thing is that he has underplayed women. women are concerned about issues beyond abortion and reproductive rights. they are small business owners. they are concerned about the flight of capital and the difficulty of high taxation and things of that nature. so, this is an issue where it's going to come down to election day and while the republics have cob sen traited on what i call low propensity voters and democrats have tried to bank their -- t
